Common Types of Vehicles in Auto Accidents
Some of the most common vehicles involved in auto accidents include:
- Cars/Small trucks/SUVs - These commuter vehicles are common on the roads, so it's obvious that such vehicles would often be involved in motor vehicle collisions
- Motorcycles - Motorcycles are small and can often get lost in the blindspots of other motorists, which makes motorcyclists especially vulnerable to serious injury
- Large Trucks/Commercial vehicles - Big rigs and other shipping vehicles can sometimes cause accidents given their size as well as their large loads
- Buses and mass transit vehicles - Buses, cable cars, and other types of mass transit vehicles have been known to get into accidents with other vehicles on the road
If you should be involved in an accident with any of the above, our Brooklyn auto accident attorneys will be here for you.
Drunk Driving Auto Accidents
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense. Not only does it impair a driver's decision making and reaction time, it also puts other motorists and pedestrians at risk. DUI/DWI accidents will never be taken lightly, and those responsible for such accidents need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
Fatal Auto Accidents
Many auto accidents result in catastrophic injuries that may not be able to be addressed. Should a loved one pass away as a result of injuries in a serious auto accident, the loved ones can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the party responsible for the accident.
Defective Parts and Auto Accidents
Though many people do not consider this, faulty auto parts such as brakes, brake pads, tires, steering wheels, and gas pedals can all cause accidents to occur. In those cases, it's important that auto manufacturers or the auto parts makers be held accountable for contributing to the accident.
